Elena Frampton and Dumais Made Collaborate on a Collection of Handmade Ceramic Lamps
Fresh from designer Elena Frampton of Frampton Co, in collaboration with Charlie and Kevin Dumais of Litchfield, Connecticut, pottery studio Dumais Made, is Verdant, a capsule collection of six limited-edition handmade ceramic floor and table lamps inspired by the scenery on Long Island’s East End (where Frampton has a gallery in Bridgehampton called the Barn).
At Dumais’s studio, slabs of white stoneware clay are stacked like children’s building blocks to form the pedestals. Next, layers of chartreuse and bottle-green glazes are hand-poured over the clay to create an intentionally incomplete watercolor finish. Off-white string shades, brass fittings, and twisted green cloth cords complete the look.
